What Is Photodynamic Therapy (PDT)?

Photodynamic therapy, also known as PDT, is a light treatment that reduces active acne, and even some precancerous lesions and early-stage skin cancers. It is FDA-approved, with proven efficacy and minimal downtime. If you have actinic keratoses (AK) or acne that has not responded well to other types of treatments, PDT could be a viable option to explore.

PDT for Actinic Keratosis

Actinic keratoses are pre-cancerous lesions caused by UV ray damage to the skin, appearing as rough or scaly patches of skin. They are more common in fair-skinned people who have experienced a lot of sun exposure. If left untreated, actinic keratoses could turn into squamous cell carcinoma, a type of skin cancer. Bald men are especially susceptible to AK.
